27' Flying Cloud Front Bedroom Roof Attachment Mystery

I need some help please. I was performing a roof inspection and A/C coil clean and noticed three holes in the roof just above the refrigerator vent and just below the single A/C Heat Pump unit. It appears that something was mounted there but is now missing that ran parallel to the trailer, maybe 18-24" long. The last time that I was on the roof, it must have been there because I would have noticed holes in the roof. I searched the parts manual with no luck. Our exact trailer:

If anyone has a picture and/or description of this mystery piece, I would appreciate any and all useful help.

Hi

Did you buy the trailer new or used? If used they may have been something the PO plugged and the plugs have now fallen out.

That's a pretty common location for an antenna. Are there any wires dangling loose here or there?

What does the hole pattern look like?

I'll get a picture later today. I should have included that with the original post. I am not the original owner. No loose wires or cables. Nothing on the interior that would suggest an additional radio, satellite or TV, Holes are in line, about 12" on center. ( . . . ) The roof membrane shows black marking around the holes indicating an attachment of some kind. These are more of a wear mark than a sealant. More later ...

There is a piece of aluminum about 3 inches tall that runs the length of the fridge vent that I think acts a deflector to keep air from the AC unit and fridge vent from interacting--Frank

Sounds like the air / heat deflector that goes between the AC and fridge dent.

Pics of missing attachment and holes

I appreciate everyone's help. I'll just get a replacement and go back on the roof. This may also explain why on long trips the gas alarm would go off. I suspect this air deflector also allows the refrigerator vent to do its job correctly and not allow crosswinds to interfere with proper venting.

Very odd that deflector would be missing.
